Vector Diary Gets a New Look!

After a week of planning and redesign, the new theme for Vector Diary is finally done! The previous color scheme is too dull and I decided to settle on a brighter color scheme. I also added more illustrations to make it more attractive. Hope everyone likes the new desgin! Back Again!

You may have noticed that the website has been down for a week. It has been sluggish last month and the server crashed at the end of the month. It took a week to reinstall the whole database and upgrade the server. Now, you will experience a faster loading time.

Also, there will be 3 new premium tutorials this month as I wan’t able to publish the second tutorial for last month. So enjoy!

Vector Diary will be offering premium membership at a low cost of $6 a month. The main objective of the premium tutorials is to help you learn more illustrator skills and techniques. The fees will help pay for the cost of the hosting, site administration and writers. We have kept the fees at a minimum $6 a month to benefit everyone. The things you will learn in premium tutorials far exceed the cost of the fees. Finally, I hope that premium tutorials can benefit you and you can show your support to Vector Diary by joining as a premium member.
